Windows XP on virtual machine on Windows 8?
4 months ago

Hi,

another one. Support for XP is ending and I'm trying to migrate my XP machine with important engineering SW (I know I should have updated but $$ is a serious concern here) to a virtual machine on another notebook. One at disposal is a Windows 7 machine with (only) 4GB. The option would be my main machine a i7-notebook with 16GB - but running Windows 8. From what I gathered until now, Windows 7 shouldn't be a problem and I still have all the XP licence information. At the moment I'm creating the VHD of my XP system. I'd prefer to create the virtual machine of course on the newer machine with much more memory and computing power. Any chance that this would work under Windows 8? Thanks in advance for any input.
